We were introduced to the head teacher of Broadstone First School, Michelle, through one of our existing clients who was impressed with our work. She wanted us to create a wall graphic that would encapsulate her story of change and reflect her vision for her school and pupils. The basis for this was to be “Growth” and Michelle saw this in the guise of a plant, as she sees teaching children being a little like growing plants. With the right foundations and conditions any little seed can grow tall and strong. We sketched out some initial thoughts and although our Jack and the Beanstalk theme was liked, another idea caught her eye. Based on a tomato plant, we designed an image to demonstrate her vision and had it printed on self adhesive wall paper; the schools reception now has a much more welcoming and eye-catching look.
